Help Ping 410 or 2021 Driver


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

So my local PGA SS has the 410 on sale for $399. The catch is that they don't have any demo clubs now that the 425 is out so I can test the various shaft options. They have the Evenflow Black, Tour 65 &75, the Alta and the Tensei Orange. I swing between 105-112 so I know it is a stiff, but I'm not what to go with. I think the Evenflow is a bit too heavy for my liking and I am leaning towards the Tour 65. I've read the Tensei has a high launch angle, but I am concerned about spin. Any thoughts or advice is welcome.

My other option is to ditch the 410, pay an extra $100-$150 and get a 2021 driver and test the shafts.

Of course everyone is different - you saw the MWD results - the 410 LST more than held it's own against anything out there for this season - I would have to thing that whatever little bit extra you'd be getting from another driver is not worth the $100 to $150 you'd be spending.  If it's the 410 Plus though I would certainly think long and hard.  I have been disappointed with mine - should have stuck with the 400 LST. 

 

Good luck

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

Thanks for the feedback. They have lots of options with the plus, a decent amount for the LST and a few SFT.  What was it about the Plus that's given you problems?

Don’t judge flex by swing speed; that is an outdated way to pick a shaft.

That said it is impossible for us to tell you what shaft or head since we don’t know you launch conditions. The only way to know which shaft to pick is to hit them.

That said the ping tour shafts always seem to get great reviews

I was among the G410 Official Testers (G410P) and still playing it.  I also recently tested the G425 series against my G410, as part of a bag fitting, and none offered any gains in distance, ball flight, or accuracy.  Of the three versions, the LST performed best for me.  

What did offer gain in distance and slightly less dispersion was upgrading the Alta CB Red 55S with a KBS TD 50 Cat 2 shaft.  The H2H test above was done using this shaft on the various driver heads.  If you haven't done so, ask to get some LM data at the PGASS using the various heads and shafts.

Spend the extra money and get a fitting and peace of mind.

Also, the shafts in the 425 use the same adapter as the 410... so you should be able to swap those out to find a fit...

Thanks so much for the feedback. I think I will go ahead and buy the LST with a tour shaft. I will take the $100 I am saving on the club and put it towards a fitting.

Thank you again everyone for the advice. I decided to buy the 410 Plus with the tour 65 shaft. While I was there I signed-up for a driver fitting knowing that I can return the club for credit within 90 days if I don't like it or if there is one that is much better suited to my swing.
